An invigorating hill walk with stunning views, visiting five hillforts. Some steep slopes and the hilltops are very exposed in poor weather, Linhope Spout is a 60foot (18m) chute of water which lands in a plunge pool 6ft (2m) wide and 16ft (5m) deep.
BEAUTIFUL VALLEY WALK AND WATERFALL
PARKING- Bulby's Wood Car Park Alnwick NE66 4LT
MILES- 8 miles approx
FACILITIES- Toilets at the car park
TERRAIN-grass paths, moorland, road walking and some rough terrain
The hill forts are easy to follow in good weather but would recommend a map, as some of it is open moorland.
From the car park cross the road and follow the path signed ‘Brough Law ¾’. At the top of the slope turn right and continue on uphill.
Keep following the grass path steeply uphill to the top and continue ahead to Brough Law Hill fort., this was great for exploring.
The path continues across moorland here where navigation skills are needed.
We followed the map in a circular walk back to the car park but then continued to Linhope spout, there is some rough paths and steep climb down to the waterfall but its a beautiful area and could be done on 2 separate days if younger children
